Detroit, Michigan- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has removed both Lebanon murder suspects from the state’s Top Ten Most Wanted list.

Derrick Devaughn Carr, 19, (left photo), of Nashville, and Shawn Derrick Betty Jr., 20, (right photo), of Nashville, were wanted by the Lebanon Police Department for one count of first degree murder-premeditated, one count of felony first degree murder, one count of attempted first degree murder, one count of especially aggravated robbery and two counts of reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon. The morning of August 10, 2013, the Lebanon Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at 46 Dedman Street where they found Andre D. Logue dead from a gunshot wound.  A short time later, a second male victim, Justin L. Johnson arrived at the University Medical Center in Lebanon suffering from gunshot wounds received during the shooting incident. Investigators believed Carr and Betty were responsible for the shooting.

The Lebanon Police Department was advised overnight that Carr had been captured by law enforcement of Farmington Hills Police Department, which is a suburban area of Detroit, Michigan. Carr was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by Farmington Hills Police Department for charges unrelated to Carr. Carr lied to police about his identity and was detained. Betty was in the vehicle as well and provided an alias name and was allowed to leave the scene. Over the next several hours, TBI agents worked with local investigators in Michigan and the U.S. Marshals Service to obtain the location of Shawn Betty. U.S. Marshals were able to capture Shawn Betty without incident.

Carr and Betty were booked into the Oakland County Jail and are awaiting extradition to Tennessee.
